Ravinia Festival 2019 was an outstanding festival this year, September 13, 2019 Mary J. Blige made a stop to Highland Park IL, and blazed the stage. The Royalty Tour was a blast I’ve been following the tour reviews and Mary J. Blige had a good amount of sold out shows this run. Ravinia is an outdoor venue with great acoustics and provides great music and hospitality. The Band of Mary J. Blige was phenomenal, under the Music Direction of Rex Hardy Jr.(Drummer).
Rex Hardy Jr, Is an outstanding drummer and arranger whose played for many stars, I was impressed on the drum kit he played on this royalty run. It’s amazing to not worry about getting the kit put together for every show when you have an amazing Backline Tech Brandon Tigner Sr The hit song’s from You remind me, I can Love you Better, Real Love, Not Gon’ Cry. The sound was amazing, it was like when she was recording the record. It was filled with an amazing crowd with different nationalities all coming together enjoying good music. Mary J. Blige is definitely the Queen. The crowd was singing every word to her songs, you just had to be there.
Mary J, Blige wardrobe was incredible, even the stage setup was amazing and she had background dancers with her show. What a sold out show even if you wasn’t in the venue, you enjoyed yourself on the lawn. You had beautiful people having picnics with family and just a great time. A FIVE STAR CONCERT AN AMAZING TIME WITH RAVINIA!!!!
